*HBO has released the teaser trailers for the “The Batman” spinoff series “The Penguin” starring Colin Farrell, as well as the long-awaited return of “True Detective.”
The events in “The Penguin” series “starts about a week after the film The Batman ends. So Gotham is still somewhat underwater,” Farrell told Extra. The series will explore the Penguin’s rise to power in Gotham.
Per Complex, “The Penguin” also stars Cristin Milioti as Carmine Falcone’s daughter Sofia Falcone, Michael Zegen as Carmine’s son Alberto Falcone, and Clancy Brown as former top gangster Salvatore Maroni as well Michael Kelly, Rhenzy Feliz, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Deirdre O’Connell, Carmen Ejogo, François Chau, and David H.

HBO and HBO Max boss Casey Bloys told THR that “we’ve been developing various ideas” for the franchise.
Here’s more from Deadline:
The series is centered around Detectives Liz Danvers and Evangeline Navarro who are looking to solve the case of six men that operate the Tsalal Arctic Research Station vanishing without a trace, when the long winter night falls in Ennis, Alaska. The pair will have to confront the darkness they carry in themselves and dig into the haunted truths that lie buried under the eternal ice.
